It's not the most complex and rewarding RPG experience you're likely to have, but since you're playing it on Facebook you probably already know that. What it is, is a surprisingly fun and accessible little dungeon romp. Gamers with no previous experience will find it easy to pick up and enjoy, while seasoned D&D vets can get a quick fix of turn-based battle while they catch up on email or update their status. Take it from an old-time sword swinger: Heroes of Neverwinter is worth checking out.
Common Sense Media
Heroes of Neverwinter is an enjoyable RPG with a nice variety of quests that require the player to strategically control four party members to make the best use of their diverse talents. At level 10, players can create their own dungeons (a maze-type environment to traverse) and receive gold every time someone else completes them. Players can also take Facebook friends adventuring in their party, but overall the social interactions are somewhat limited. Like most Facebook games, players can spend premium currency -- called Astral Diamonds -- on extra energy and special items, but the experience is still enjoyable without having to pay. Interestingly, Heroes of Neverwinter offers players the option of unlocking unlimited energy for 250 Astral Diamonds (about $25).

D&D: Heroes of Neverwinter is the perfect game if you're in a very narrow demographic: D&D-loving Facebook users with lots of likeminded friends. If you match that description, you'll be able to plunder countless dungeons with your friends' characters in your party, and you'll profit whenever your friends take your character for a spin. Otherwise, playing this incarnation of the famous board game can be fun, but it will be a constant drain on your wallet, and you'll miss out on the social networking that only Facebook can provide.
Then there's dungeon creation, which allows for a surprising amount of variation. Tile sets, structure, storyline – it's all up to you. Your friends can take your sadistic creations for a spin, theoretically giving the game absurd amounts of replay value. Perplexingly, however, that feature – possibly the game's coolest – is walled off until you hit the level cap.
Rough spots and all, though, Neverwinter succeeds in establishing itself as a big fish in an ocean-sized pond. It's a smart, quick RPG with some actual depth that'll slyly hook you before you even notice. So yes, Heroes of Neverwinter is a Facebook game. And I'm just fine with that.
Premier jeu vidéo officiellement basé sur les règles de la quatrième édition de Donjons & Dragons, Heroes of Neverwinter ne s'en sort pas si mal. On parle bien d'une application Facebook, sommée de simplifier les mécaniques du jeu papier pour s'adresser au plus grand nombre ; mais elle a le mérite de préserver suffisamment la dimension tactique des combats. A côté de ça, la possibilité d'intégrer dans son groupe les personnages créés par ses amis et contacts est une idée ingénieuse, parfaitement dans l'esprit du social gaming. Comme bien souvent, seul le bridage excessif de l'expérience de jeu de l'utilisateur gratuit laisse une ombre au tableau, d'autant que les prétentions financières de ce titre sympathique mais sans envergure sont bien trop gourmandes.
